okay, so on my 30 minute drive to drop the kiddos off at school at 6:30 this a.m., i was thinking about how i needed to post to the blog.

i was also thinking about how its been a long time since i threw some facts about me out there.

i mean after all, this blog is about me right???

so i decided that i was going to try (and i stress the word try) to remember every friday to post some thing (or things) about myself.

it may be one thing.
it may be ten things.

if anyone is interested in doing this themselves, please let me know, b/c i'd love to hope on over to your blog and check it out.

'cause i'm nosey like that.

here we go {drum roll please}

{1} when i was about five years old, i was hit by a car. i remember it like it was yesterday...(okay, that seemed a lil much don't ya think?)...anyway...the icecream truck was in our neighborhood, however, i needed to cross the street to get to it. to my left there was a man working on his car and it was extremely loud. i proceeded to cross the street and due to the loud car, i couldn't hear the people yelling at me not to move. bam! the lady with the all the cats came barrelin' up the street and hit me. now it wasn't hard enough for me to be seriously injured or anything, but i was scared shitless.

now granted i remember i good bit of it, i'm still a lil confused as to how i got the icecream, but i did. it was one of those yummy icecream feet with the gumball for the toenail. i ran home and pottied my pants on my way there.

i still was able to eat the melted foot...yum!!!

{2} i remember my dreams. now i'm not talking remembering them just the next morning. i remember them years later. i can be sitting at my desk doing some work and a dream i had a year ago will pop into my head. its the craziest thing ever. i keep saying that i am going to start writing them down that way when i remember them i can go back and see when i had the dream.

{3} speaking of memory, mine is pretty damn good. i remember conversations, i remember what people wore the last time i saw them, i remember what i wore every day of the previous week therefore i try not to duplicate and outfit (this of course drives mike ka-razy when i'm asking him "do you think anyone will remember that i wore this shirt last tuesday?), i remember details to things, i remember events that took place when i was probably too little to remember.

okay, folks, that's it for this week.
anyone wanna send me an email next thursday to remind me to do this again next friday??

I can't believe you got hit by a car! I'm glad you're ok.....damn the lady with the cats!

And I'm SO glad you said that about Meredith, I swear her face looks years older, but when I mentioned it to the other girls I was with they told me it was just because her hair was darker. I'm not so sure if it's just the hair....her face definitely looks way different!!

oooh - I'm a rememberer, too, and it drives everyone nuts. Mostly because I remember stuff they wish I had forgotten. And I am weird about outfit duplication as well. I know my students will ridicule me if I wear the same outfit twice in a semester. So I don't. Same pieces, yes. Same outfit, no.

*~*Jocelynne*~* said...

DUDE! I do that with outfits too! Especially if I'm in photos...and I totally remember what people wear and when! Brian will say 'no one knows or cares' and I used to think that if *I* noticed, surely someone else would too?

So we really ARE separated at birth!

Remember when Jerry meets that girl with the black and white dress, and then he sees her the following week and she's wearing it again...and he and George decide she must have moved the dress up in her rotation? lol

*~*Jocelynne*~* said...

DOH! My point is this: if I think someone WILL indeed remember that I wore this such and such time, if they ask, I would just tell them I moved it up in my rotatioN! lol

What's really freaky is when you remember a dream but you're awake. I remember years ago being on a train in Sydney and looking out the window and seeing a place I'd dreamed about.

Yes, I was too chicken to get off the train and explore further!

Greta said...

yes she does...this bitch remembers what i wore on my birthday and shit.....she's a freaky deek!!

V said...

Love your random facts!! Remember how we bonded over my love for ketchup and mashed potatoes or was it rice?! It's your mom that does that too!

miss you

Josie said...

I totally agree what you said about Meredith! Something was kind of off..I thought it was just her hair at first too but I can't pinpoint it.
I love the random tidbits, I'll have to give it a try next Friday!
